I always save my birthday (its a big one!) for the annual survey, because honestly, its a great reminder that yet another year has gone by (ug) and that I should check in with you.
I’d love if you could take a couple of minutes to answer some questions about Brooklyn Bride, what you like, what you’d like to see more of, etc. We’ve got some changes coming up so I want to make sure they’re on target with you, my dear readers.
Thanks in advance!
Brooklyn Bride is going to be getting a face-lift soon, and it seems like the right time to bring on some new blood and get some new columns cooking over here!
I’m currently looking for 2-3 assistant editors to help with the day to day aspects of running Brooklyn Bride.
The ideal candidate:
* Has a great writing style
* Has a similar aesthetic to Brooklyn Bride – modern, fresh, quirky, colorful
* WordPress, InDesign + Photoshop experience preferred
* Can do 1-2 posts a week
* Specifically looking for people to help contribute with DIY, Real Weddings, engagement shoots, studio tours, product roundups, event coverage, etc.
Editorial positions are unpaid on a trial basis for the first 3 months, after which will be compensated.
To apply, please send a sample post along with an inspiration board of images that visually convey your aesthetic, and preferred topics to cover via email with the subject heading “editor position”. Unfortunately I will not be able to respond to each applicant personally, but thank you in advance for your interest in joining the team!!
I’m also looking for an intern to help me out with submissions, running the FB page, managing emails, helping with laying out posts, etc. You should have a love of modern design and weddings as a whole. If you’re interested, please email me with subject heading “intern” and your resume with why you think working at Brooklyn Bride would be a good fit. This position is only a couple of hours a week and you do not have to live in Brooklyn, but living in the tri-state area might be helpful so you can attend local events. This position is unpaid.
Its definitely a rainbow kinda day…Brooklyn Bride is 3 years old today! How time flies when you’re having fun, right?? I’ve got some fun stuff happening this year so bear with me while it takes shape!

Update: Dress by Alexander McQueen
We’re looking for engaged couples to feature in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue of Brides Local Magazines (on newsstands as Brides New York, Brides Chicago, Brides Southern California, etc).
Are you newly engaged and overwhelmed by the gift-registry process? Are you having a hard time finding items that fit your personal style? We want to help!
Using your favorite home décor item as inspiration, we’ll create a list of registry items that reflect your personal style. This inspiration item can be anything—a favorite piece of vintage china, a much-loved tablecloth, or an eye-catching throw pillow.
Couples who have already registered can be considered for the story as well. And, of course, featured couples do not need to take any of our suggestions.
If you would like to be considered for the story, please email the following to Allison_Bean@condenast.com with the subject ‘Registry Story’.
– Bride’s Name:
– Groom’s Name:
– Wedding Date:
– Wedding Location:
– Three words that describe your personal style:
– Photo of you and your fiancé
– Photo of your favorite home décor item
Happy happy thanksgiving everyone! Much like everyone else, I’m taking the rest of the week off to reflect, relax, and rip into some turkey down south in Louisiana, so I’ll see you back here on Monday!
And don’t forget….
If you’re interested but having signed up for the card swap yet, today at 3pm EST is your last chance, so don’t delay! No joke, this is the biggest swap we’ve have yet! I keep having to go out and buy more envelopes! See the full info at the original post. CARD SWAP IS NOW CLOSED
Oh, and there’s been a question some of you have had about how the swap works…essentially you’re sending 1 card to each person in your card swap group, and its as if you’re sending a card to a friend, so yes, feel free to write a note inside!
